High-altitude Ladakh, in the far northern Indian Himalayas, has an extreme climate with a long winter. Hence, the most popular and best time to visit Ladakh is during the region's summer when the snow on the high passes melts.
The climate in Ladakh is divided into two seasons: four months of summer (from June until September) and eight months of winter (from October until May). Summer temperatures range from 15-25 degree Celsius. In winter, the temperature can drop as low as -40 degree Celsius.
